The 'Pillowy' humidifier design incorporates a more tactile method of control in order to make it more interactive and satisfying to utilize. Designed by Lu Yicong, the 'Pillowy' humidifier allows users to apply pressure via squeezing in order to indicate how strong they want the unit to operate. This adds a more satisfying experience that deviates from the traditional aesthetic of touchscreens that have infiltrated virtually every aspect of the market.

The 'Pillowy' humidifier design brings back a physicality to the experience of controlling a device via a physical switch or lever. This seemingly moves backwards in terms of technology, but shifts the consumer experience to be more focused on enabling them to actually interact with the products around them.
